Hedgehog Fibres colours reflect Beata’s personal style and range from dark, rich and earthy to crazy, fluorescent and vibrant depending on her moods – but always colours she loves! Originally from Slovakia, Beata has called Ireland her home for over a decade. In Slovakian, Jezek means hedgehog so in 2008, when knitting friends pushed her to sell her yarns, Hedgehog Fibres was founded. (No Hedgehogs are harmed in the making of our products!)

Yarn dyeing started as a extension of Beata Jezek’s other hobbies – spinning, knitting and crochet. Beata says “Soon after I took up knitting, I realised I really wanted to create my own yarn line of soft, squishy yarns in beautiful colours. It’s the colours I want to knit with, the colours I want to wear and the colours I can’t live without.”

And another talented, very well-known, knitting designer , and colour genius living in Amsterdam, (‘Mr. West’) is also a VERY big fan of Beata’s yarns. Many of which he uses in his own pattern designs.
